Winter storm Jonas and your boatCheck your boat after it’s safe to travel again. You might inspect your boat for these three potential issues: 1. Possible 50 to 70mph winds could blow off or whip snow up under a boat’s protective coverings, 2. Accumulation of ice and snow creates weight issues for boat wraps and coverings, 3. Coastal flooding from storm surges combined with a full moon this weekend will make tides higher than usual.Jonas Storm snow and ice on a boatSnow-Boat
